Church members of First Baptist Church surround our pastor with daily and weekly prayer. Each Sunday they gather in the pastor’s office to pray during the worship service. They pray for the prayer cards turned into the offering plate that week and they pray for the people and the pastor while the Word of God is being proclaimed.
A vibrant ministry for those who are 50 and older at First Baptist Church.

"I feel there is something missing if I don't go to church on Sunday," said Becky Morgan, long-time member of First Baptist Church of Eaton Rapids. "I was convinced there was a God and Heaven ever since I can remember."
Becky grew up in Mason and was baptized as a teenager. "I credit a lot of what I know to my Sunday school teacher, Maxine," she said. "I think I was a Christian since I was conceived because my mother always went to church," she laughed.
In 1941, Becky and her husband Kelsey moved to Eaton Rapids.Together they have four sons and one daughter. While raising their family, Becky said her husband did not want her to attend church, and she really missed going. Kelsey passed away in 1990, and Becky visited FBC soon after. She has been attending here ever since.
"I love Pastor Scott's sermons," said Becky, now 93. "So down to earth and teaches the Bible in a manner you can understand."
At the World Cup opening ceremony next week in São Paulo, a paralyzed Brazilian will walk onto the field and kick the ceremonial first ball. The young man or woman will be aided by the newest iteration in a line of mind-controlled exoskeletons—if everything goes according to plan. The pilot will wear a 3D-printed helmet and a concealed cap of electrodes. All he or she needs to do is think about the necessary movements, and "the brain–machine interface will convert human intent into robotic motion," The Atlantic reported.
Duke University neuroscientist and Brazilian native Miguel Nicolelis is leading the initiative, and he and his team are working frantically to prepare for the exoskeleton's debut. Nicolelis told the BBC, "This is just the beginning. . . . Our proposal was always to demonstrate the technology in the World Cup as the first, symbolic step of a new approach in the care of patients with paralysis."
ALBANY, Ga. — The Harrelsens are faithful members of First Assembly of God.
And West Avenue Baptist.
And Sycamore Nazarene Church. And three other congregations in town.
The family has changed churches six times in the last eight years, but is so afraid of offending each pastor that they have never officially left any of them. Today they follow an amazing schedule of church attendance to maintain the fiction that they still belong to all six congregations.
Thomas Watson was a gifted preacher and writer in England during the 1600's. He loved the well-known verse: Romans 8:28. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
The most basic reason why all things work for good in the life of the Christian is because the Lord has made you one of His children. Psalm 50:7 says, I am God, your God.
YOUR God! He has made a covenant with YOU by the blood of His Son. This means...
He is your Great Physician.
He is a skillful Physician. He knows what is best. He knows your personality and He knows what medicine will have the best result for you. He treats each of His patients differently and makes sure that whatever He does for them turns out to the best. If the Lord does not give you something you like, rest assured He will give you what He knows you need. Instead of comfort, He may chose to heal you. He works all things together for your good.
